    I don't reveal centre link payments, generally because people never ask!
    I would think most people do this, and you're right people don't ask in person where your money comes from because it's unbelievably rude.

    When I was on SPP I always used to consider it pay day and it wasn't really anyone's business where the payments came from. I hate the idea of those on disability pensions, old age pensions and so on to have to say "it's welfare day". They have a payday like the rest of the world..their is just a lot less

    Or that working parents who don't get anything don't work hard enough at being a mum so shouldn't be paid by the Govt for it?

    I am sure that's actually not what you meant by the way, but we all raise our kids, even the ones who aren't at home full-time

    Child support is calculated on the biological parent's incomes only. Believe me, I would receive a lot more child support if my ex's partner's income was taken into consideration!

    Im a single mum to 2 and no longer working due to study commitments...

    So I receive benefits from centrelink and $10 a ft child support.

    I don't class myself as having an "income" because im not working I call the money I receive welfare

    When I worked what I was paid by my employer was "my income" not including any welfare as I acknowledge it separately.

    With our centrelink our combined income is about $65000 thats with both dp and I working, dp casual me part time. It sounds like nothing but we live fairly comfortably and still manage to have luxuries. All thanks to dps budgeting!!

    any money that 'comes in' to our bank accounts is considered income.

    it then gets separated into a taxable income and benefit depending on the context of the conversation.

    I would consider my income as everything that directly comes into our accounts (except for rebates).
